Dave Vander Ark's translation states:
You may not build “impossible” canoes, i.e. you may not put two stern cards next to each other.
Does that extend to building a canoe that cannot be completed, either because a non-bow/stern abuts the virtual edge of my x14 grid, or because it would join a Blackfoot and Redfoot canoe (when playing with tribes variant)?
When playing yesterday, I attacked my opponent, stealing the other half of the Gold combo. I was happy to slide my cards over to make room for it, but suddenly found myself in a position where it was impossible to complete the canoe. Of course, my opponent now had no incentive to attack it, and I couldn't feed it to Crazy Hatchet, so that row became locked up for the duration of the game.
